RESOURCES FOR UNEMPLOYMENT 

We recognize that during this time some members of our UW-Stout community may find themselves without employment. If you are out of work through no fault of your own you may qualify for unemployment insurance benefits.

Unemployment insurance is a joint state-federal program that provides temporary financial assistance to unemployed workers who meet the earned wage and weekly eligibility criteria.

Tips for Success: Working & Learning Virtually

For Work Space:

  • Designate a Space – it’s much easier to focus and will create positive habit
  • Soak up the Sun – natural lighting is best for productivity
  • Eliminate Distractions – use a quiet room without a tv and use apps to block distracting websites

For Productivity:

  • Get Organized – before you work for the day be sure everything you need is within reach
  • Create Accountability for Yourself – set daily goals and review assignment deadlines regularly
  • Keep Breaks Short & Sweet – limit the duration and frequency of breaks, set a timer if you need

For Yourself:

  • Stay Well Nourished – Keep healthy snacks at your desk and avoid caffeine and sugar crashes
  • Get Dressed – you’ll feel more prepared to take on the day when you keep a routine
  • Get Up and Move – breaks and movement spark creativity and help you stay focused
